Is this legal, code-wise?
I'm talking about the conduit coming out of this J-box in a S pattern. Does it need to be strapped to something or is it OK for it to be floating like that? Its like 3 feet till the first strap. This is in a basement.

Support within 3' of a box is code.
What made you question this?

Well, its my first time using conduit right out of a box like that, I'm not familiar with what is legal for support, and it looked weird just floating in space, so that's why I questioned it. Thanks for your reply.
